Subject: singing is great in Black Muddy River
kick yo predjudice out da do'!
Jerry comes into deep territory while singing Black Muddy River, especially towards the latter part of the song, and the harmonies with Bobby and Brent, along with the determined, emphatic playing of the rest of the band, makes this one rich with feelins.
the reviewer who mentioned Jerry's added sensitivity with the "death" and loneliness ballads after the coma, had a good point!
Fans of Billy and Mickey might want to check this one out, especially the All Over Now. Very punchy and pleasing.
Subject: The days for the Youngbloods
The bus came by and I got on. This was 87', the glory days for the band. At this point in their run they were polished technically and graciously accepting of their roles. This was the rebirth of 1977 multiplied. They were on the edge of mainstream and super stardom living it all over with much more knowledge and appreciation and more seductive in conquering. Mountain Aire' @ Calaveras co. was the high. Drums were legendary in 87'
Gratefulshrink, how do you come up with "1966-77"? Are we talking about Grateful Dead or early Ford Broncos?
I love the blanket edicts heard on Archive.org. Why not '78? Or let's make it good and clean and say, '79 so we can put the marker at K&D's departure.
Personally, I beleive that after 12-31-77 (or whatever dateline certain reviewers choose) the incredible music GD continued to create no longer fit into certain reviewer's limited scope of perception and willingness to grow.
Yes the '80's were flawed, Jerry's voice is painful, and Brent does get annoying at times, but this show as well as most of the '80's output is more than offset by stellar performances and daring new sonic territories explored. Try 6-21-89.
..... Of course, all of this is IMHO!!!
super sweet peggy-o and row jimmy.
jerry always seemed to play like he was dropping stars on these 2.
I find myself mostly this many years later attracted to the pretty slow songs when jerry played them especially sweet. This show represents that well.
Subject: go figure
another good one from the kaismeister!setlist is 3.75 stars sound is all of 4. Technical merit 9.1,9.2,9.9,9.9,9.9 for a total of 3 and 3 qtr. stars...your our new champion...here on star search!
Subject: Excellent show!
4 1/2 stars on sound quality!
4 1/2 stars on playing!
I'm rounding up to 5 stars overall!
Subject: Nothing "tinkly" and annoying here folks...
Nice sound from this board, a good mix...
A smokin' Rooster if I say so...
Subject: good stuff
had this show for years and i really love it. Great set list and well played throughout.
Subject: I'll tell you why
Because Jerry's voice was pretty much shot by the 1980's (along with his health), the keyboards are "tinkly" and annoying, and the music is so tired compared to say 1966-1977.
Subject: why aren't people downloading this show?
This by no means is worth 5 stars in my mind as far as the show goes(the sound is maybe a 5), but it's close thanks to the beautiful Black Peter near the end of the second set. After Jerry's coma you definetely notice a new outlook in the way he sings any songs relating to death, no exception to this one. Get this show for the Black Peter! And if ur a fan of booming bass that will make you piss yourself, get this show for the Scarlet>Fire.
Subject: way better than the other recording
This copy is much crisper.
